I am organizing the labels for street names. In order to get the positioning correct, I converted the feature labels to annotations. This has allowed me to hand-craft the positioning of the labels, which was the desired result.
However, (to my knowledge) these annotations are now unable to scale with the feature.
For example: My 1:1 Print zoom looks excellent, but zooming in on a feature, the annotation remains at Print scale and appears giant at the new zoomed scale.
Can I convert these annotations back to feature labels and maintain their new hand-crafted positions?
I am using a "Basic" license. This means I do not have access to the Feature-Linked Annotation.
It is not a problem if the Street Name labels/annotations remain separate from the Streets Feature. The main issue is keeping the scale of the label-to-street ratio when I zoom in or out.
I want to place each street label by hand and have those labels scale accordingly with the Streets feature layer. (Add and Remove labels with free range of motion)
